Description

The Cisco IOS XR Ethernet VPN Implementation and Verification (IOSXR303) v1.0 course is a 3-day instructor-led, lab-based, hands-on course. This course will examine next-generation solutions for Layer 2 VPN (L2VPN), EVPN terminology and concepts, and traffic forwarding. This course will also show students how to implement and troubleshoot the various EVPN technologies and investigate EVPN Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) seamless integration with Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS), EVPN out of service, virtual Ethernet segment, and EVPN route policy.

The overall course goal is for you to be able to implement and troubleshoot several Ethernet VPN (EVPN) technologies, including EVPN native, EVPN VPWS, PBB EVPN, EVPN IRB, and EVPN VXLAN, on Cisco IOS XR devices. This course will examine next-generation solutions for Layer 2 VPN (L2VPN), EVPN terminology and concepts, and traffic forwarding. This course will also show students how to implement and troubleshoot the various EVPN technologies and investigate EVPN Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) seamless integration with Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS), EVPN out of service, virtual Ethernet segment, and EVPN route policy.

This course can be delivered in person in a classroom (3 days) or online as a virtual-instructor-led training (VILT) (4 days).
